Why Not, In for 1

This is the great BLF, and we twist every thread sideways and have 25 experts chime in on the manufacturing of a reflector, about the proper “Perfect Tint” needed to cut through 78% humidity in the Alps,
about the inefficiencies of a Buck/Boost driver when driven at 9.3 volts.

Or about the best shipping solutions to east/slight west aberdeen.

Or my favorite, Copyright laws.
Why ever hire a Lawyer when all the free, expert advice is right here on the internet.

And always remember to Beware of the Great Grifter

This is going to be out of my price range, but I am subscribing to the thread anyway.

I am ready to pick apart their design and suggest improvements! Big Smile

I kind of doubt this will be a 50k or 70k lumen light. I bet it will be more along the MF03 in output, but higher sustained run time.
Maybe turbo for 4 minutes instead of 1.
Maybe high for 20 minutes instead of 5.
That sort of thing. Maybe 10k to 12k sustained output. Maybe more?

Just because you add active cooling doesn’t mean you can suddenly do 50k + lumens. Your still limited by the batteries. I don’t know how many people would be willing to buy a 12 cell flashlight. Or a 16?

Who knows, it might be a medium sized light, like an L6 with a sustained 10k output running on 2 × 26650. Could be.

Anyway, add me to the interest list.

Well you know it’s going to be from Banggood because Astrolux is a Banggood only brand. It’s their house brand.

50K is rather extreme.

Just sharing some of their plans so that you guys will have something to look forward to. You don't have to check this thread too often.

The low mode should be lower.
